. >> latino are 15% of registered voters in key battleground state as florida where romney was today. colorado, and nevada. they questioned mr. obama for non-fulfilling his promise to pass immigration reform in the first year. the top concerns of hispanics are even tougher for the president. >> the number one issue today for latinos, especially latino voters is the economy. impact the great recession has had on latinos has been tremendous. >> recent fox news poll confirms that, showing 48% of hispanics chose economy as the most important issue. while only 23% said immigration. no wonder that romney emphasized economy in september interview with univision. >> there are 2 million more hispanics in post officeerty today than when the president took office. we have had 56 straight months with unemployment above 10% for hispanic-americans. unacceptable. >> bush got 44% of the hispanic vote in 2004. polls show romney getting a little more than half that. bret? >> bret: jim, thanks. still ahead -- look at some of the big-time gaffes made by the vice president in recent days that have gone under the r

stopped. the independent voter was romney-ryan had a slightly bigger lead than they do now. the number of people unsure from 29% now down to 16%. most broke for president obam obama. >> bret: early october it was 44-32. you're saying that the obama number goes up. >> yes. >> bret: so does romney-ryan. >> by one. obama-biden went up by 7. romney-ryan went up by one. if you look to the other unsure, 25% in early october. now down to 16%. >> bret: put number two up if you can again. >> so things breaking there more for the incumbent than the challenger. overall, what charles is saying is right. generally things break for the channeler. the income intent a known quantity. but not that it completely breaks for the incumbent. so many battleground obama maintains small lead, but maintaining it. but the fear is that romney momentum would carry him to lead in those states. >> bret: steve? >> the ultimate cliche in politics is turn-out determines elections. that's what will happen here. cliche for a reason. charles touched on one of the two things that the romney campaign is pointing to, voter i
voters, so the romney camp is going to be all about election day. that's their -- that's their long ball but it could not be closer. every vote matters here in ohio. both camps doing everything they can to get out their vote on tuesday. >> every vote matters everywh e everywhere. get out and vote, everybody. vote early. we'll talk to you again at 1:00 eastern time so i'll see you again soon. thanks for dropping by. a smaller more efficient government or an invisible hand to assist and protect those in need? president obama and mitt romney, guys, they have very fundamentally different visions of government and what it should do for you. it is capitalism on trial. which version will you choose? 5. and everyone, but her... likes 50% more cash. but, i have an idea. do you want a princess dress? yes how about some cupcakes? yes lollipop? yes! do you want an etch a sketch? yes! do you want 50% more cash? no you got talent.

[ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: president obama meantime, continuing down the path you can't trust governor romney. that he is misleading american people, imploring to give him another four years to get the economy on track. now is not the time to be changing horses. >> after four years of president you know me. you may not agree with every decision i have made. maybe you are frustrated about the pace of change but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i tell the truth and you know i'll fight for you your families every single day. >> reporter: part of what the president said feeds into the narrative that governor romney is creating here. that he is a nice guy and means well but he doesn't put a take to get things do
to secure the young voters, governor romney is ahead by about the same margin in a very different group. and counting on them to show up and vote. abc's david muir tells us who. he's traveling with the governor in ohio tonight. david? >> reporter: hey, diane. great to see you. after the governor visited iowa today, he is back here in the buckeye state. he needs ohio to unlock the map on election night. and in that new abc news poll you speak of, a key group that might help him get there. mitt romney's closing argument in one of the battlegrounds he needs. >> i'm counting on iowa. >> reporter: today, romney delivering his economic message. a message our new poll shows is resonating the loudest among one key group -- white men. in fact, so much has been made of the powerful women's vote, but it is men who are driving mitt romney's numbers. romney leads the president with white men 66% to 32%, a 34-point lead. john mccain's lead among white men four years ago was half that. >> mitt romney may have a hard time relating to voters, but he is dialed into white men. they are very much attuned t
is up in wisconsin by eight points over mitt romney among likely voters, but when you look at the people who are both likely to vote and follow politics, that lead shrinks to only two. both sides acknowledge that getting out the vote is crucial and a huge part of doing that is finding the volunteers willing to keep calling and knocking until the election. >> is this your life now until a week from tomorrow? >> oh yes. we're just going to keep going right up until the very end. keep making calls. keep doing doors until the polls close. >> okay, you're out there, i'm going to be out there more. >> reporter: ted rowlands, cnn, racine, wisconsin. ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] some day, your life will flash before your eyes. ♪ make it worth watching. ♪ the new 2013 lexus ls. an entirely new pursuit. >>> welcome back. it is always remarkable how during times of tragedy, so many people rise up and show their humanity. i met a guy like that when i was in new jersey this week covering superstorm sandy. bell mar was hit hard and many people were trapped in their homes, but one man decided he was

't the only lies that romney's campaign it pushing. they are training poll watchers to mislead voters in wisconsin. any person who was a convicted felon cannot vote is what they were told. it's a flat out lie. in wisconsin felons can vote. meanwhile in ohio, the lies continue. former senator norm coleman told a group of voters that roe v. wade would be safe. then we'll pass a group campaigning for social conservatives declined to comment on his remarks. doesn't seem like they are on the same page. let's bring in nina turner. also the chairman of the ohio democratic party. great to have both of you with us. what does it say about him, his campaign and also the intelligence of ohio voters not being able to differentiate between the lies and truth. >> he has no shame and no soul. if you're lying in the beginning, you'll be lying in the end. it shows a sense of desperation to try to invoke fear. they know the president threw a lifeline out to the auto industry where by one of every eight jobs in ohio, over 850,000 jobs, are linked to that industry. for them to try to scare the citizens of
. but what about norm coleman, former senator of minnesota. he told a group of voters romney wouldn't reverse roe v. wade. >> women should not fall for it. he was interviewed where mike huckabee. he called it judicial activism. women are not falling for it. in the state of ohio, 55% to 40%, women are in support of the president. we can't go backwards and we can't allow women to be treated like second-class citizens. you have a running mate of the governor that identified rape as a method of conception. they are absolutely insane. they have lost their minds and it is up to the voters in this state and this nation to find their minds, but find it somewhere else. it's despicable. the whole campaign is laced with lies. >> the stories out of wisconsin, and you're hearing similar things in ohio about poll-watching activity. how much of an impact is this going to be? >> we have lawyers ready to combat this. this is about the remaining 3 or 4% that are undecided and anything the romney campaign to do to distract and divide. i suspect over the course of the next six days, mitt romney is going to annou
's a matter of seeing who has the better ground game to get voters to the polls. >> romney and ryan, are they going to be campaigning together tomorrow in ohio? >> they will. they've got three stops across the state tomorrow on the bus. we expect that the crowds will probably are getting in fair notice the governor will be here, as well. we'll see bigger crowds than we would have otherwise. >> ron mott on the bus with congressman paul ryan in ohio. thank you, sir. do appreciate that. democrats are relying on women voters to help propel president obama to a second term. governor romney surging. he's nearly even with the president among registered female voters, a number that puts the proposed gender gap into question here. let's bring in our panel. beth, lynn, good afternoon to both of you. beth, let me show you one more number from your poll if i could put it up. president obama's 16-point lead with women on the economy. now a four-point disadvantage. how worried should democrats be? >> very worried. if this is actually going to bear out, it's a disaster for the democratic ticket. p

as they were in 2008. he needs his folks to turn out in big numbers. the romney electorate voters are more excited. i don't know that it's going to make that much of a difference in virginia where there's early voting. it's less important who actually shows up on election day. i think to the extent that it does diminish people showing up at the polls at all, that is less helpful to the president, more helpful to mitt romney. folks are going to show up one way or the other. it's the obama camp that's really got to get to people, get them to the polls. this will make it a little bit hardener places like virginia. for the most part, he doesn't have any trouble winning new york. >> it's a great point about turnout. we'll keep an eye on all of the states. ben white from politico. >>> what will volumes look like? we'll discuss that when we come back. busy in here. yeah. progressive mobile is...

to tell voters there that mitt romney had no intention of overturning roe versus wade even though mitt romney himself says he would do everything he could to overturn roe versus wade. he said if that happened be he would be delighted to sign a bill banning all abortion at the federal level. last week in ohio mr. romney made a mistake, an out and out gaffe. >> i saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state, jeep, now owned by the italians, is thinking of moving all production to china. >> not true. totally false. jeep is not doing that. the day mitt romney told that made-up horror story to ohio voters chrysler had already announced that actually they were expanding. in ohio and in michigan. they weren't pulling out. mitt romney responded to the instant fact checking not by taking it back but by turning that lie into a new ad for ohio. and then he bought extra air time for it in toledo, where ohio workers make jeeps and where being told falsely that your job's being shipped to china might be personally terrifying news. chrysler tried again to set mr. romney straigh
% to 45%. then going on to florida, the president gets support from 49% of likely voters. mitt romney, very close behind with 47%. let's go now to the latest on governor romney's campaign stops today. he starts off with a rally coming up in just about two hours, 9:00 a.m. nbc's peter alexander is in new hampshire. good morning to you, peter. >> alex, good morning to you. we're on the tarmac here now in new hampshire, specifically just a short time from now this is going to fill up with a big crowd greeting mitt romney and then sending him on his wail for what will be an exhaustive weekend. beginning here in new hampshire, he makes stops in iowa, colorado, back to iowa, ohio, pennsylvania, a state the republicans are hoping to pick off from president obama, and then virginia. and that's just saturday and sunday, and he will sleep sunday night in florida, believe it or not. yesterday night, quite a scene, the largest crowd we've seen all campaign for governor romney, close to 30,000 people gathered outside cincinnati and ohio. among them a lineup of top republican leaders, as well as sp
higher than most expert predicted. vice president biden told voters in wisconsin a romney presidency would erase all the progress the president made. >> we believe for americans to succeed the middle class has to rebuild and grow. it's the only way working class people have a way: >> reporter: the president wrapped us his campaigning at an airport thursday night reminding voters of his efforts to help an auto industry that accounts for 1 in 8 ohio jobs. >> if mitt romney was president when the auto industry was on the verge of collapse we might not have an american auto industry today. we would be buying cars from china instead of selling cars to china. >> reporter: the president was off the campaign trail today. he did a series of interviews with tv and radio stations. the new economic numbers come as the latest "associated press" poll shows likely voters with more confidence in mitt romney than president obama to handle the economy. 51% to 44%. at the white house, i'm tara mergener for cbs 5. >>> i'm ken bastida in mobile5 in south fremont. we are going to show you what it took to
and the press were invited. voters had to wait to drop off their donations until romney arrived to collect them himself. john mccain even went as far as to blast president obama on the benghazi attack. one other issue is romney's thoughts on fema. here he is yesterday. >> [ inaudible ]? >> romney: why -- >> why don't you answer any questions about fema. >> nothing to say. more bill coming up after the break. highest priority on election day. besides, you can always dvr my show. you really cant' dvr the future of the country. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. so vote and vote smart.

likely independent voters romney defeats obama 46% to 439%. the president hats improved 5 points since october. here is something interesting among extremely interested voters 53% to 42%. now on the question of favorability. just about tied. president obama 52%. governor romney 51%. poet have 56% unfavorable rating. fox news also asked the folks if the obama administration has tried to mislead americans about the attacks on libya. 44% say yes. 47% say no. full-timably president obama's hand links of libya. 47% approve. 47% disprove. much of the mainstream libya has covered the president over libya and the issue has not gained big time traction. fox news correspondent catherine herridge reports she reviewed a cable sent why by the u.s. mission to the secretary of state hillary clinton on august 16th. it went to mrs. clinton's office. it stated americans in benghazi did not believe the consulate could be defended against a coordinated attack. of course on 9/11 there were coordinated terrorist attacks that killed ambassador christopher stevens and three other americans. it is clear the ob
of this year's coveted swing voters. look, how closely did mitt romney align himself with what had, i guess up until last night, been the worst foreign policy ever? listen to these guys duet on syria. >> i believe that assad must go. >> assad has to go. >> i don't want to have our military involved in syria. >> for us to get more entangled militarily in syria is a serious step. >> so the right course for us is working through our partners -- >> -- in consultation with our partners -- >> -- to identify responsible parties within syria. >> mobilizing the moderate forces. >> organize them. >> helping the operation organize. >> we need to make sure -- >> making absolutely certain -- >> that they don't have arms -- >> -- arms ? >> the wrong hands. >> to hurt us down the road.

(laughter) what the hell's romney up to? the whole debate was a to
. >> and further to this issue of trust, the president took aim at mr. romney for misleading voters with egregious and desperate claims that chrysler is moving jeep production to china. >> it's not true. everybody knows it's not true. the car companies themselves have told governor romney to knock it off. you don't scare hard-working americans just to scare up some votes. that's not what being president is all about. >> no, it isn't what being president is all about, but it is what the romney campaign is all about, as he demonstrated today in wisconsin trading rolled up sleeves for his salesman's suit and warning voters that a vote for the president could mean another recession, among other horrors. >> the same path we're on means $20 trillion in debt in four years. it means crippling unemployment continues. it means stagnant take-home pay, depressed home values, and a devastated military, and unless we change course, we may well be looking at another recession. >> yes, i guess someone told mr. romney it's the day of the dead. all he's missing there are a few skeletons as stage props. hang on, wha
states a tougher challenge for romney. obama campaign officials argue polls of early voters in battleground states suggest their bank of obama votes means romney will have to win on election day well more than half the votes in key states to win. but the president is not relying solely on early voting or even on this new rekindled bipartisan pitch. in this state alone, diane, president obama and his allies have run 16,000 more ads than romney and his allies. and if that's not enough for you, on monday, president obama will be back here in ohio with bruce springsteen. diane? >> okay, thank you, jake. >>> and also tonight, the latest in our brand new daily abc news/"washington post" polls. tonight, the poll gives mitt romney a one-point edge. so, we asked abc's david muir to tell us his strategy for the final sprint. >> reporter: mitt romney bolting through the battlegrounds. today, on the campaign plane, it was the candidate taking pictures. romney capturing images of his staff sneaking a nap, as romney faces to the finish. in just the last 24 hours, virginia -- >> virginia,
, president obama and mitt romney in a dead heat, 46%. when it comes to the key independent voters, romney and ryan have a 7 point edge over the president and vice president. will these swing voters make the big difference on tuesday? here for a fair and balanced debate, juan williams and andrea tan tar rose. we always know it comes down to the independents in most cases. is this good news for romney and ryan? >> i think it is. i think you want to win those independents and they can be determined, as you just said. what you have to look at also is how they've been swinging. you see president obama's team had a bump up in recent months in terms of the independents. but it still is an advantage for romney. >> gretchen: andrea? >> look at ohio, he's up six. virginia, up 21. florida, romney is up five. elections are won in the middle. barak obama had the same type of edge that romney can boast that he has now. remember, obama went on to win 54 to 44 john mccain. look, i think that's the most troubling number and i would point out by these new fox polls as well, it shows it's not just independe
. the paper's editorial board writes, quote, voters should give mitt romney a chance to correct the nation's fiscal course and to implode the partisan gridlock that shackled washington and the rest of the america with want understanding he would face the aim assessment in four years if he does not succeed. pundits debate the value of these endorsement, so why does in matter? iowa's six electoral votes could decide who sits in the oval office january 20th. right now the president has a slim two-point lead if you average the recent state polls and the register's endorsement could give romney the boost he needs. it validates romney there, not to mention this is the time the register endorsed a republican in 40 years, the last one was richard nixon in 1972. we know how it turned out. mitt romney is heading to dann port this evening. the president is sending the first lady there today and joe biden on thursday. i want to put up a quote from my friend rory cooper who said "the des moines register" enl dorised carter, mondale, gore and couldn't endorse another four years of obama. wow. you see fo
. >> reporter: and today, romney's closing argument, meant to appeal to the moderate voters, the sliver in the middle that might still be persuadable. promising to work the other party, with this attack aimed at the president. >> he promised he'd have a post-partisan presidency. but it's been the most partisan i've seen, with bitterness and division and demonization. hallmarks of his presidency. >> reporter: the romney campaign eager to move past those images of chris christie applauding the president's response this week to hurricane sandy. tonight, the campaign tells me they're ground game in the swing statements is far ahead of where john mccain's was four years ago. here in ohio, they believe romney's strength among independents will fuel a win here. in the sub burrs surrounding cincinnati, all matted phones, dozens dialing at once. listen to this volunteer that reaches a coveted voter who's clearly had their phone ring before. >> you're not being punished. think of it is you are well liked. >> reporter: consider yourself very liked, as they call those voters over and over again. to
. we also know that romney's policies will increase the debt. massively, immediately. >> but voters believe that obama's will do so much more harm. voters unfortunately are choosing between two men, each of whom are far from perfect, i think that's why you see a lot of -- it's very negative. >> one of whose math will lead to balanced budgets. and one whose math will not. >> change, that was an interesting change in mitt romney's speech this week, he kept talking about big change, you want big change, i can bring you big change. what challengers do it. we heard bill clinton do it. we heard barack obama do it. certainly. the hope and change thing is now benefiting the republicans this time. >> it transcended to their signage. it really is their closing message. >> more than election census, 1980 and 1964, this is about the proper scope and actual confidence of government. it will come down to a basic feeling that people have, who understands government better? >> i think that's fair. though, it will be interesting to see, if you had a huge hurricane that affected sometimes -- >> say a
